We took the art into the communities for the Hoye Wayelo Summer Arts Immersion program at the Lakota Cultural Camp in Wanblee.
We were invited by the directors of this unique camp to come and work with the students who were getting immersed in Lakota teachings and culture. As art is such a big part of Lakota Culture and traditional identity is such an important part of the work we do – it was a beautiful collaboration.
Set on the traditional ceremonial grounds of the Moves Camp family – we did a focused version of the start quilt. Kids designed the pieces and wrote on topics of their Lakota identity and culture. They shared ideas, values, and qualities they thought were important to include in to the beautiful 3D star quilt.
